WWE superstar John Cena visibly got emotional during a new interview—and it was all due to his engagement to Nikki Bella. The Trainwreck actor stopped by Good Morning Britain on Tuesday, December 5, to discuss a range of topics, the biggest point being his spring 2017 proposal to Bella at WrestleMania 33.
Producers at the morning show replayed the scene for Cena, who got misty-eyed in response. “It’s the best moment of my life,” Cena shrugged as co-host Piers Morgan noted the emotion on his guest’s face. “And I couldn’t think of a better place to do it. The WWE has been my family for the past 15 years… We have such a strong connection to our audience.”
Cena said the reaction from the crowd had something to do with it. “If you watch the match back, the audience hated me,” Cena says of his fight that night with Miz and Maryse (another standout WWE couple). “But it’s such a show of respect that once the performance was over, they realize that this is a moment we are both going to remember for all of our lives.”
